People will be able to still get to houses and businesses in the area as local access to the scrapyard, Wester Newlands and Newlands Cottage will be maintained.

A Falkirk Councile spokesperson said: “The temporary prohibition of traffic is to allow for drainage investigation survey works, but will only have effect in relation to such part or parts of the lengths of road as defined and during the periods stated – indicated by the appropriate traffic signs.”
